  • Help us ensure a strong voice for fishing in the run up to the Election

    The Countryside Alliance has launched a Rural Manifesto which has been well received by politicians as we move towards the next General Election. In the wide-ranging manifesto, we are calling on the next government to include outdoor education, including angling, as a fundamental entitlement within the National Curriculum. In addition, we want a future government to fund and empower the voluntary sector to deliver increased opportunities for people to participate in angling and outdoor life. Outdoor education has proven health and social benefits for children of all academic abilities and adults too. Our charitable arm, The Countryside Alliance Foundation, already carries out work using angling to engage children with learning difficulties and assist cancer patients to recover from their illness. We want to build on and extend the reach of angling in delivering community benefits.

    For an organisation that is occasionally accused of not being serious about fishing, the Alliance has invested at least £250,000 into angling projects over the last three years. We will continue to invest in, support and promote fishing. Signing up to our Rural Manifesto doesn't cost anything and will strengthen the chances of achieving our goals. So please, go to and click on the Rural Manifesto button, or call 020 7840 9242 for a Rural Manifesto postcard and by signing up to our Rural Manifesto you will be joining the hundreds of thousands who have already pledged their support.

    Kindest regards
